and president obama, we need you. [applause] the other major threat we face from sea level rise is salt water intrusion. one in for a solution is already underway. the comprehensive everglades restoration plan. restore more fresh water to the everglades is not as much about protecting us from sea level rise as it is about restoring the ecosystem. as i said then and will say again, we have to fight water with water. more fresh water for the everglades need more water flowing into our offer and pushing back on the encroaching see. completing portions of the spreader project will be critical to restoring important wetlands flowing into the everglades and biscayne national park. and that means we will have a significant tool to hold back salt water front precisely in the place where we are seeing the greatest environmental -- the greatest movement and land. everglades restoration is also emblematic of the challenges and successes we can have working together. local state and local government. it should serve as lessons learned as we plan our adaptation strategy together. i want to take a moment t
